We are boarding the Amtrak and heading to the Mission in San Juan Capistrano today. Part of 4th grade Social Studies is studying the California missions. I think it is important that Hunter experiences a mission ahead of time so he knows what the heck his teacher is talking about (I know, I know, poor teacher's kid).

Dusan is lacking enthusiasm. To quote him, "We are taking the train to look at an old white building with lots of birds? Can the kids even go in there?"
My response, "No I thought we'd disguise the kids in monk robes and sneak them in with us!"

Should make for an interesting day. I'll be back Tuesday with documentation of course.

That makes me really miss teaching! Tell Hunter 4th grade is THE BEST EVER! (I also get nostalgic smelling pencils this time of year) Plus I REALLY miss shopping for new school clothes!
